I only accept private pay.
I can provide a superbill if your insurance provider offers reimbursement for out of network expenses.
Benefits of private pay:
The client determines the length and type of counseling that best suits their needs.
Confidentiality remains between you and your chosen mental health care provider.
Concerns for using insurance:
Insurance providers have the authority to:
-determine the number of sessions they will cover.
-determine the limits of which situations warrant coverage.
-determine what forms of treatment are covered by their policy.
-require a diagnosis that stays on your permanent health record to receive coverage.
Insurance providers are a for profit business, not the mental health professional you sought & hired to support your personal well-being.
Counselors relying solely on insurance receive significantly reduced rates and must carry caseloads at least 50% larger to earn the same livable income.
Increased caseloads perpetuate counselor burnout and may reduce the quality of care for you and other clients.
